P-47D-28 (Battle of Bodenplatte) Template pack - REDUNDANT AS NOW OFFICIAL IN SIM

Recommended Posts

Thanks a lot PatCartier, it worked just fine.
Have to be careful with the different grey tones though, to match them correct, and not make them to dark = black.

Which will leave holes in your skins 😂.

BTW, your English is just fine!

Outstanding thank you ICDP, I'm having a blast. Just curios I don't see the criss cross pattern for the tread...maybe I missed it!

ICDP, thanks a lot for your fabulous template! Do you plan on adding some smoke behind the gun barrels and ejections ports of the .50cals?

 

Quick question regarding the alpha channel. Despite the fuselage and wings being the same shade, I am under the impression that the wings and horizontal stabs are much more reflective than the fuselage, as can be seen on the skin below. Am I the only one under this impression, is there something I am missing?

This is a personnal skin depecting a bird of the 388th FS / 365th FG, again using your excellent template.

Sorry folks, my hosting site messed up and didn't update the correct template file.  It was my fault for keeping it the same name.

 

So new version should be called

Hi,

this is the canopy rubber joint, left unpainted.

Not located on the skin but on another .dds file (enkrypted in planes3.gtp, if I recall correctly).

Hi,

yes but it should be nice to "weathering" it.

Look at this one >

Maybe painting over "aircraft part" layer ? I tried but didn't manage to do it.

We need to start putting all of the P-47 skins in one thread so skinners don’t make the same skin twice..l

Which font did you use ??? I am looking exactly for those numbers on tail and leters and numbers on fuselage. Thanks.

Just wanted to thank ICDP again for the fantastic template.

Here is the first of my humble efforts using the template. It's a squad skin so there is no historical relevance to any real world Aircraft.

Can someone make a little tutorial step by step what to do with the alpha layer stuff after we finish painting and flatten image please.

@ICDP May I ask if at some point if you will be adding a checkerboard layer for the cowl to the template?

 

I have given it a go but its a bit beyond my abilities if I'm honest.

I'm away from my computer but my mig template has it as a layer. I think I left it in the public release as well.

Yes, there is a skins folder with subfolders for each aircraft type. Just copy ICDP's skins (the .dds files) into the P-47D folder, and you will see them in game as custom skins.

Please forgive me for being a complete noob, but how do I tone-down or remove the "gloss coat" around the engine nacelle, it seems to wash out my artwork.  I'm using photoshop to perform this work, thanks.
